Juventus reject Chelsea’s mega-money approach for Higuain

Having missed on the Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku who moved to Manchester United from Everton this summer, Premier League champions Chelsea have stepped up their efforts to sign an alternative world-class striker.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport reports Blues have identified Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain as their top transfer target with the London club rumoured to have already submitted a bid for the Argentine striker.

Antonio Conte is ready to splash a mouth-watering £88 million for former Napoli forward who only joined Bianconeri last summer for the identical sum.

Chelsea are reportedly keen to snap the 29-year-old prolific forward but have seen their initial approach rebuffed by the club’s CEO Beppe Marotta.

Gonzalo Higuain was criticised for his weight issues last summer, but the Argentine sent a clear message to his critics by scoring 24 goals in 32 Serie A appearances for Juventus.

The Argentine star added 5 more in 12 Champions League appearances, whereas he also bagged three goals in 4 Coppa Italia outings.

In addition to Higuain, Chelsea have also been linked with Alvaro Morata and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
